BlackHaddock (6380) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2012
Part of the 2011 Wetherspoons Autumn Beer Festival list: reviewed in Bewdley. Hand pulled pint into a UK sleeve: copper body, clear but not bright, thin white head with no lacing produced. The smell was mostly of biscuity malts, digestive at first, then as the beer warmed a little the aromas became sweeter and caramel along with hints of toffee appeared. The taste was also on the sweetish malty side, with a wooden dryness at the end of each sip. Not wishy washy, but no real body depth, a beer which Id pass on next time.

ladnewton (1811) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2011
Cask at the St John Oldcastle (JD Wetherspoon) Farringdon, London on 31st August 2011. Amber with thin whitish head and a lot of pattern lacing. Berry fruits and woodland pungency in aroma. Burst of raspberry and citrus in-mouth, with mild spiciness and a touch of grass before a mainly citric finish. Cheesy hoppy echoes afterwards. Zingy mouthfeel, rather pleasant easy drinking and refreshing, although one pint was "enough".

imdownthepub (13389) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2011
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Cloudy gold with no head. Served cold and flattish. Quite a sweet beer, fruity, apricot with a hint of perfume. Slightly cloying in the finish. Not kept well, but some character does show through.

tombyars (1599) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 10, 2011
Tasted this in The Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in October 2011. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear copper amber in colour with a thin white head. Short note of green apple in the faint aroma. Thin but refreshing mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malts give a good digestive biscuit base with fat sultanas. Quick hop bite in the slightly dry, brief aftertaste. Finish is well balanced with woody dry notes present. An ok bitter considering the 4% ABV.
